As far as events are concerned a little bit of planning can go a long way, and a lot of planning can help take your event from ordinary to extraordinary. If you are planning to once again take on the whole shebang yourself, here are few helpful hints from the professionals on how to plan ahead in order to execute a stress free event.

When planning a holiday event it is imperative to not take on more than you can chew figuratively and literally! It is very easy to get carried away with extending invitations to everyone you know while trying to wrap your head around maintaining some type of budget. The best way to stay on track is to have a specific plan. This mean writing out your guest list, actually figuring if your budget will support the amount of guests you have invited, and planning a menu that is within your ability. If you are not a talented chef or have an extremely tight budget consider doing a simple appetizer style menu or a potluck.

The next thing is to create, on paper, a simple timeline and a list of things that can be prepared ahead of time. After that, you need to ask your trusted friends or family if they are available and willing to help. Keeping a tangible list is the best way to coordinate and delegate tasks so that you can works smarter not harder the day of and day prior to the event. As much as people like to think that they can do everything, setting up for and breakdown an event is extremely time consuming, and this hasn’t even taken into consideration the actual time you will have to invest in preparing the menu. The best way to execute your plan is to start preparing for the event at a minimum of 3 day in advance. This means setting your tables, preparing cold foods, chopping vegetables, wrapping gifts, and deciding what you are going to wear before the morning of the event. When the event is all said and done with and your last “guest” has gone home, now it is time to clean up and put your house back in order. Be sure to ask for help with stage as well. If this all sounds like fun to you, then by all mean enjoy yourself, if it doesn’t, contact Savory Cuisines Catering today and let us take the stress out of your upcoming holiday party.
